October 29: Best-Selling Author Jay Asher To Speak At ConVal

Jay Asher, the acclaimed author of Thirteen Reasons Why, will be visiting and speaking at ConVal Regional High School on October 29!

Asher's debut novel explores two topics at the front of teen’s minds: the nature of bullying and how individual actions can influence teen suicide. The paperback edition hit #1 on the New York Times bestseller list in July 2011 and has sold over 1 million copies worldwide, including in countries as diverse as Brazil, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Israel and Italy.

The New York Times describes Thirteen Reasons Why as "a stealthy hit with staying power" and "thriller-like pacing.” NPR's program All Things Considered has raved that Thirteen Reasons Why will leave you with chills long after you have finished reading.


Thirteen Reasons Why is the recipient, among many others, the California Book Award, the Florida Teens Read Award, and was a pick for the American Library Association’s “Best Books for Young Adults.” Commonsense Media gives Thirteen Reasons Why a four-star rating and writes: "There are positive messages here about the importance of treating people with kindness -- and about the price of inaction." A more complete list of praise for the book and its importance in the genre of young adult literature can be found here.

Out of the success of Thirteen Reasons Why grew Asher's desire to organize a "50 States Against Bullying" campaign. The visit at ConVal Regional High School on October 29 is one stop of Asher's tour. The Publishers Weekly article about the "50 States Against Bullying" campaign can be found here. Join the national conversation about bullying on Twitter using the hashtags #ReasonsWhyYouMatter and #50StatesAgainstBullying.
